Default Re: My Indepth Comparison of WoW verses EQ2.

When traveling the Karana's in EQ1 it would feel endless since the only time you knew the current zone ended was either by a landmark or you got the "Please Wait, Loading" msg. EQ2 always has a door or a gate... the barriers are pretty defined making it feel closed in.
Yup. This is exactly what I mean. EQ 1 and WOW zones blend together well. EQ 2 zones do not. The way EQ 2 is designed is you could connect any zone to each other and it would fit because there really is no pattern. In EQ 1 and WoW, The zone connections have to make sense to what they are connecting too because of the way landscapes connect to each zone.
